Agreement Gives Reprints Desk Customers Access to RedLink’s Article Subscription Analytics and Visualization Tools to Better Manage Workflows and Budgets
ENCINO, Calif., September 12, 2017 — Research Solutions, Inc., (OTCQB: RSSS), a pioneer in providing cloud-based solutions for scientific research, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Reprints Desk has entered into an agreement with RedLink, a rapidly growing provider of business analytics to academic publishers and libraries. Under the terms of the agreement, Reprints Desk may now offer RedLink’s “Library Dashboard” product to its corporate customers in the scientific, technology, and medical research industries.
Enhancing Reprints Desk’s award-winning Article Galaxy research intelligence platform, RedLink’s Library Dashboard provides a complete, normalized overview of usage and turn-away statistics to help with collection decision-making, and offers easy to use data integration, analysis, and visualization tools. Library Dashboard gathers data from publishers via existing system access and allows users to see cost-per-download analyses, usage trends, and denials via bundles, journals, ebooks, databases, publishers, and disciplines, in addition to more granular and customized views.
“As our customers move toward more sophisticated, data-driven research workflows, we are excited to offer RedLink’s Library Dashboard as a powerful complement to Article Galaxy,” said Ian Palmer, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Reprints Desk. “With a single point of billing and 24/7 support, the combined solution provides a better path to data-driven decision making — enabling researchers to manage their literature, procurement methodologies, and budgets more efficiently than they have before.”
Corporations, academic institutions, and government organizations around the world rely on Reprints Desk’s Article Galaxy for copyright-compliant access to full-text scientific, technical, and medical content when subscription access does not yet exist. A cloud-based research intelligence platform, Article Galaxy provides one-stop shopping, automated data augmentation of scientific content, and lowest cost acquisition of full-text journal articles, ensuring copyright-compliant access when filtering requests against subscriptions and Open Access content.
“Our agreement with Reprints Desk is an excellent opportunity for RedLink to extend its reach to help corporate librarians and researchers,” said RedLink’s CEO, Kent Anderson. “Via this partnership, scholarly content can now be acquired and optimized using best-in-class document subscription delivery and analysis tools, on boarding services, and training.”
RedLink helps libraries, publishers, and users see what they’ve been missing. RedLink’s products include powerful, intuitive dashboards for libraries and publishers (Library Dashboard and Publisher Dashboard), unique sales prospecting engines for publishers (SiteLeads™), and editorial engagement tools for editors, authors, and readers (Remarq™). RedLink also offers RedLink Network, a free service libraries and publishers can use to collaborate on synchronizing access credentials and service needs.
